Lionfish, Batfish, and Eels, Oh My!

Back to the diving world we go. It seems like it has been ages since tanks, regs and bcds scattered the deck. To kick off the warm water diving in the Caribbean, everyone had the chance to do two dives in Portsmouth, Dominica. The first dive was along a sloping wall covered in coral and marine creatures. For those completing their Advanced Open Water certs a few skills were required at depths around 80 feet. On the second dive we swam along an old pier, which seems to be a favorite among a number of species. Eels could be seen hiding themselves in the sand, batfish looked as though they were hopping along the bottom and crabs could be found in massive coral heads. No one should be worrying about finding fifty marine species for their Marine Biology Journals after those two dives.
